Have you signed up for the NETCONF & YANG Automation Testing Program (NYAT)?
The NYAT program is easy to join and provides you with instructions and technical support to perform NETCONF and YANG interoperability and automation best practices testing using Cisco Network Services Orchestrator (NSO) and additional tools. This free program is available to Network Element Providers (NEPs) who implement NETCONF and YANG in their products. Technical support, along with full documentation for both the setup and use of the test tools, is provided as part of the program.

A new example project called confdgnmi has been started at ConfD-Developer on GitHub. The project implements an example gNMI Adapter using existing ConfD APIs.
